Abstract

This paper uses the concept of the entrepreneurial university and the so-called 'Triple Helix' to analyse the nature of entrepreneurial capability and capacity building within a university environment. The authors analyse the operationalization of the entrepreneurial process of the entrepreneurial university as it looks to create new knowledge. According to Heinonen and Hytti (2010), this is an underdeveloped area in the literature and so there is a knowledge deficit. The authors seek to address this deficit by using an inductive approach to develop a conceptual model of the entrepreneurial process.
